Protocol NYC is an event series that brings together the best distributed ledger projects in the world. Whether you are a technologist, entrepreneur, investor, or corporate executive, Protocol NYC is a place for anyone interested in the decentralized economy of the future.
In the spirit of interoperability
This month, we are launching the very first Blockchain Showcase. Each blockchain project is given 30 minutes to present their technology & vision followed by a friendly Q/A with the community.
Presenting this month:
IOTA Evangelist Network
The IOTA Evangelist Network is an international group dedicated to promoting the IOTA technologically globally to establish IOTA as a technical standard for distributed ledger technology.
IOTA is the first open-source distributed ledger built to power the Internet of Things. The main feature of IOTA is the tangle, a directed acyclic graph (DAG) for storing transactions. The tangle naturally succeeds the blockchain as its next evolutionary step, & offers features that are required to establish a machine- to-machine micropayment system. IOTA's distributed ledger is feeless, & does not consist of transactions grouped into blocks & stored in sequential chains, but as a stream of individual transactions entangled together.
Holochain allows you to build truly scalable applications that are faster, more scalable, & ten thousand times cheaper than blockchain apps. Holochain puts each user in control of their data, their applications, & the way those applications connect to one another. Come dive deeper into holochain & collaborate with other developers interested in building p2p apps.
Fantom is a new DAG based Smart Contract platform that intends to solve the scalability issues of existing public distributed ledger technologies. The platform intends to distinguish itself from the traditional block ledger-based storage infrastructure by attempt- ing to employ an improved version of existing DAG-based protocols. The mission of FANTOM is to provide compatibility between all transaction bodies around the world, & create an ecosystem which allows real-time transactions & data sharing with low cost.
About Our Partners
IOTA Evangelist Network (IEN)
Iota Evangelist Network wants to establish IOTA Tangle as the ubiquitous distributed ledger technology (DLT) in the world & the foundational protocol for the upcoming Machine Economy or 4th Industrial Revolution.
